Description of problem:
When opening the PDF file at
gpdf just crashes and goes into bug buddy
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download http://www.pirastro.com/pricelist/p-list2004/cello.pdf
2. open it in gpdf
3. (or just browse to that URL and let it open gnome-pdf-viewer)
Actual Results: gpdf crashed. bug buddy (unfortunately) didn't show
any useful information like a traceback.
Expected Results: a display of the prices of 'cello strings.
I have saved a copy of this PDF file in case Pirastro update their web
I guess this does not qualify as a YellowPad anymore since ggv is now
the default (and opens the file correctly).
I reported it upstream:
Should be fixed in gpdf-2.8.0-2. Apparently the package did just need
to be rebuilt.
For the record, maintainer comment on what could have caused this:
GPdf uses private gnome-print headers...
And private stuff doesn't have ABI-guarantees...
The plan for 2.10 is to stop using that, of course.
